COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the region it’s from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. That’s because it’s carefully aged and handcrafted to be uniquely flavourful, yet remarkably easy-drinking. Made from North American hops and malt, and winner of Canadian Lager of the Year, this delicately balanced thirst quencher is the refreshing departure you’ve been waiting for

The pour is a light golden straw with a thin fizzy white head. Some moderate carbonation. The aroma is grainy with a light grassy hop and mostly cereal malt. Sweet and grainy with light hops. A slick and somewhat oily mouthfeel with no carbonation in the taste. Drinkable and fresh, but not much else.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2008 Bottle fresh from the brewery. Pour puts a clear deep golden lager in the glass with a decent 2 finger frothy white cap, Bready malts and woody Nobel hops in the aroma...light whiff of sulphery lager yeast. Sturdy malt spine, firm body, bready-woody character. Nice chew of fresh bready malts in the front..nobels show to balance, decent middle with some sweetness, citrus, herbals tones tapering out to the thick finish which is slightly malt accented. Fresh and bready tasting with just enough hopping to keep the sweetness at bay...the quintessential crafted all-malt lager..a deal at less than a buck a bottle and when fresh.

DerWeg (1482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2009
6 X 355 ml cans. Lawnmower lager that doesn’t disappoint! Very clear light gold with nice lacy ’real looking’ white foam. Smells bready sweet and clean with notes of lemon and hay. Taste a surprisingly symphonic charge of sweet malts and fruit , vanilla, grape, lemon, and gentle bohemian-style hopping that rounds out an edge of dryness over a sweet and clean finish. The feel of the beer is excellent and I suggest drinking it lightly cooled to demonstrate that this very inexpensive lager has no defects and is not in any way metallic.

Cannette 473 ml. 4.8%. Couleur jaune or avec une mousse blanche. Arôke de malt et de maïs. Goût très doux avec une bonne effervescence, légèrement sucré. Notes de céréales. Finale de houblon très légère. Froide quand il fait chaud, elle est très bonne.

Touch of hops, sugary. I didn’t detect anything premium, but maybe so much of the same at the Toronto Festival of beer will do that to you.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2004
Clear, bright yellow. Fizzy white head that disappeared quickly. Light, sweet malt aroma. Light feel. Clean though relatively bland sweet, bready malt flavour w/ very low bitterness & some mineral.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2002
different and slightly better than I expected. most ontario micros make a piss lager, but this is pretty good in comparison. light brown colour. berry-ish aroma with a more pronounced raspberry taste and a hint of mustard seed/turmeric flavour. not bad.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2003
Has a really odd taste that I wasn't expecting. Has a slight raspberry taste with a bit of an acidic bite like viniger and bitterness to it. Cloudy yellow gold. I don't think I would buy this again. Given to me or found in a bar full of labbats and molson I would have it though. Nothing special.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Clear orange yellow, small foamy white head fades. Sweet malty grainy aroma. Crisp clean lager malt taste, some fint hop grassiness and a hint of citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Refreshing and easy to drink. Decent lager. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
